Abstract: In the last 15 years, cognitive remediation (CR) has emerged as a promising therapeutic intervention for improving cognitive and psychosocial outcomes in people with schizophrenia. As defined by the Cognitive Remediation Experts Working Group (2012), CR represents a training-based therapy ‘targeting cognitive deficits (attention, memory, executive function, social cognition, or meta-cognition) … with the ultimate goal of improving functional outcomes’ that are durable over time. Similar iterations have been cited previously. Nevertheless, we raise the possibility of inconsistencies in the application of this definition.
